What does religious freedom mean?

Aug 10, 2012 Full story: The Washington Post 836

In the United States, Muslim women trying to maintain modesty should get female-only hours at the public pool , right? What about Wicca troops who want a chaplain of their own, even if there are only a few thousand of them in the military?

Thank you, Big Al. I always bear in mind that many people are worse off than me. I simply count my blessings every day.

Have a good one!

Freedom of religion is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance; the concept is generally recognized also to include the freedom to change religion or not to follow any religion.[1] The freedom to leave or discontinue membership in a religion or religious group —in religious terms called "apostasy" — is also a fundamental part of religious freedom, covered by Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.[2]

Freedom of religion is considered by many people and nations to be a fundamental human right.[3][4] In a country with a state religion, freedom of religion is generally considered to mean that the government permits religious practices of other sects besides the state religion, and does not persecute believers in other faiths.

Freedom OF religion also includes a specific Freedom FROM religion as well

Obviously "Innocent until proven guilty" dosent apply in Indy anymore. You accused him of being a thief, and I havent found evidence in any of the threads of that. However, I have only your recent posts to go by as you are registered and the one you accuse is not. BTW my point is you BOTH are guilty of slander so GET OVER IT. GROW UP AND MOVE ON. If you get so offended over an Anon internet posting, you have deeper issues.

And you are full of sh!t. The only "point" you have is on top of your head, you are the one that needs to grow the hell up and move the F*** on. You were neither asked nor invited to shove your busybody nose into this but you are casually invited to go F*** yourself.

I've read over some of your posts and now I feel better because I thought you hated me.But now I see that you treat me no better than anyone else.

Not my style,but it works for you.I tip my hat Sir.

Wow, I guess I shouldnt have offered an opinion on a PUBLIC posting on a PUBLIC forum where anyone can read it and offer their own opinion. But since I have been nothing but polite to you and you have done nothing but flame me and invite me to preform an impossible sexual act, I do politely suggest that it is indeed you who needs to grow up. And as this might anger you further, I will offer another opinion for you. Any one who gets this worked up over an internet forum really needs to examine their priorities in life and adjust them accordingly. Just my opinion.

No, you had it right the first time. You are a damn troll, nothing more, nothing less, and anything I can do to facilitate your complete and permanent removal from this website I WILL be doing.

Perhaps saving your "opinion" for someone who actually would want to hear it or take your "advice" seriously would do much in making you seem to be less of a busybody. Just FYI, the term "F***" is not limited to sexual acts, throwing yourself from the top of a high rise building, looking down knowing you have no way of stopping yourself from the fall or actually surviving and you will understand what being "F***ED" is all about.
Go find some other busybody or perhaps getting a life of your own will keep you from feeling the need to spout off in others business unasked and uninvited.
Oh BTW, when you continue to offer opinions unsolicited, you invite responses like you received, odds are if you had done it in person in Public, you might have also received a nice view of the middle finger of my right hand, any further reply would have probably resulted in you needing dental work and/or stitches. Mind your own business.

Well you can degrade me all you want to.
I know you really care for me in your own way,and all the attention you've giving me over the last year was for my own good.

I've been very jaded lately.I've kind of drifted away from my religious beliefs and need someone to give me a swift kick in the seat of the pants.

Thank you.

If you didnt put your business on a Public forum, I might have not felt the need to comment. The very fact that you did does invite others to offer their own opinion and comments. If that bothers you then maybe you shouldnt post here. I knew I invited your comments when I decided to post mine.
As for my life, you know nothing about me or my life. Notice I only post once a day if at all. I check the boards during my lunch hour at work. At home I am a husband, father, and a local volunteer and am far to busy to be worried about your opinions and feelings.
I find you entertaining, and thank you for the laughs you have given me so far. Oh, by the way, your threats of psychical violence made me laugh harder than I have for a long time.

Actually I know quite a bit about your life from your comments, the fact that you are a self righteous busybody and annoy the living hell out of anyone around you is quite obvious, as is the fact that being an insufferable jackass, you are probably oblivious to that fact.

If you know so much about me just from my postings here, than you MUST be a better person than I too. Oh I feel sooooo inadequate compared to you, oh wise one. I dont know how I can go on with my pathetic life.
